S.H.I.E.L.D #1

             Ok this plot is a little  complicated, it turns out many great scientists and warriors were members of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Da Vinci was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. So was Sir Isaac Newton. So were Imhotep and Zhang Heng and Galileo and many other geniuses throughout time." (taken from www.Mycomicshop.com)It shows how Da Vinci flew up to battle Galactus, and  how Imhotep fought great horrors that were out of this world, all the heroes said the same thing: "This is not how the world ends!" All of this is explained when a group of immortals are telling Leonid, who is definitely a mutant, that he will save the world next.
     This comic didn't do it for me. For one Shield stands for something, I will not type it out it is way too long, and they said it was because they were a shield protecting the earth. Second, they should explain who Leonid is, Hickman got to exited about describing how the world was saved by ancient people that he forgot to say who the main character is. Finally at the end Leonid's father Dark man comes to get him, and then Da Vinci comes and tells him to sound the alarm, which is just cool, and actually leaves you waiting for the next issue, Hickman did do well there. Lastly in a panel with Imhotep there is a character on the far right that looks just like Apocalypse, I don't know if they did that on purpose, but they better have, because having Leonid having to fight Apocalypse would also be just plain cool.

  1. So if Apocalypse was in the issue with Imhotep does that mean he was a member of Shield? Does he get back pay for that?

    Also wasn't Imhotep the bad guy from the mummy?

  2. No, Apocalypse's appearance, if he appeared at all and it wasn't just a look alike would just mean that he was present during the battle. Which could mean a future showing, which would be just cool. But I doubt that it will happen.

    And yes Imhotep was the villain in the mummy.
